I filed a motion to leave cross complaint and it was granted and the ruling says that the proposed cross-complaint is effective from the date of ruling. But I just found that the cross-complaint needs a summons and it's been over a week from the court ruling. So if I file the summons now, is there any problem? When is the cross-complaint considered filed then? From the day of the court ruling or from when the summons is filed?
Also how should I serve the summons? Can I serve just the summons or should I serve the cross-complaint again with the summons? Should the cross-complaint be served through personal service?There is other cross-defendants other than the plaintiffs in the cross-complaint. Shall I just submit the summons on the new cross-defendants only? Should the cross-complaint itself be signed and served to the new cross-defendants with the new date with the summons? Should the cross-complaint be served with personal service?
